Behavioral/Mental Health, Recovery from Addiction, Life in General; these are a few of my favorite things.

Last one before the Holy Night!
Hey, friends! I hope you've gotten all the stuff you needed to do, done, to be ready to celebrate the Birth of the Christ-child! We're packing up things to take to my Sweety's parent's home, North of here. The running joke is "This time, I think I'll bring some of HIS clothes, too!" If you have or know folks with ADD, you probably can imagine what that's all about. <sigh>
Anyway, we're making a quick trip up & back, but I have to say that I hit In-law paydirt with his parents. They are the nicest and most accepting people ever. It's like when I was getting to know my Sweet man, he kept FREAKING ME OUT, b/c he's SO unlike the idiots others. They are in the same category. I get all stressed out at the thought of spending time with his folks, and then when we're together, I realise that my imagination has gone wild again, and I feel kinda silly. (Yeah, that's a pretty familiar feeling for me!) SO, tonight we'll try to sleep, and at about 6:30 in the am, we're heading out. UGH. I'm just hoping the cats will be ok. We've been having pretty obvious wrestling for the Alpha Cat spot, of late. ; ) Idk who I want to win. Just no blood-shed!!
I hope your holidays are calm, peaceful, maybe even joyous, and much less crazy than you (I) imagined they would be.
